Travel Tips for Free Family Fun on the Riviera

Cycling in Nice by Using a Vélo Bleu. Cycling along the seafront, along the splendid Promenade des Anglais in Nice, looking out across the dazzling azure sea, is one of our favourite family activities.  We no longer have to faff around fixing the bike rack to the car to load up our own bikes. We rent a vélo bleu.  Vélo bleu, quite literally blue bike, is the name given to the city’s public bike share scheme, along the lines of Velib’ in Paris and “Boris bikes” in London.  While they may technically be Nice’s bikes, the network extends as far as St Laurent du Var and Cagnes sur Mer, making it even more convenient for us to use as we don’t have to drive into Nice to start our bike ride.

Family-friendly cycling and walking: Villeneuve Loubet is located between Nice and Antibes, and for tourists, it may not seem instantly appealing with fewer restaurants and accommodation than other French Riviera towns. However, there is plenty to see and do with lots of free activities and paid attractions that will keep your family happy on a weekend or holiday.

Rebecca Whitlocke

New Zealand born and raised, Rebecca moved permanently to the French Riviera when she fell in love with an Englishman working on a super yacht.

With 10+ years background in the travel industry, she left the rat race and founded Access Riviera after realising there was a lack of travel information in English for expats and tourists.

Access Riviera is her blog providing general travel advice regarding sightseeing, transport and festivals focusing on families and persons with reduced mobility mixed in with a healthy dose of posts about 'la vie en France' as an expat.

When not writing for her blog and collaborating with companies such as FlipKey, Lonely Planet Kids and Wanderant, Rebecca consults globally in tourism and media. She enjoys stand up paddleboarding on the Riviera coastline, and searching for the best tarte aux citron in the region.
